ANPA Overview

ANPA: Overview

THE ASSOCIATION OF NIGERIAN PHYSICIANS IN THE AMERICAS (ANPA), was incorporated in 1995 for educational, scientific, charitable and social purposes as a tax-exempt non-profit organization under Section 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

ANPA represents the professional, political and social interests of the 4,000 plus physicians, dentists and allied health professionals of Nigerian birth, ethnicity or empathy in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.

ANPA provides a platform for medical, scientific, political and social dialogue, on issues of health within North America, the Caribbean, and Africa, pertinent to persons of descent from the Nigerian Diaspora.

Nigeria is a microcosm of Africa. Experience gained and methodologies developed in Nigeria can be extended to other sub-Saharan African countries.
